Blended with just the right proportion of Golden Virginia and Burleys, Lane's RLP-6 is a basic blend of Toasted Cavendish tobaccos which takes on a zesty dimension. A great all day smoke with hints of Vanilla and Chocolate.
Ok, one bowl of RLP-6 was enough to make me a fan of this blend! I know I'll need more time with it to get to really know it, but my first impressions are very favorable. Many of the other reviews of this blend mention flavors like vanilla, nougat, c... Read Morehocolate, and various fruit. I guess I could taste some of these things, like the vanilla, but more than anything I was tasting caramel, something rather creamy, some nuttiness, and banana. Especially banana! No kidding. Banana! I didn't see any other reviews here or elsewhere mention a banana flavor. Maybe it's just me. Banana... Hmmmm... Anyway, don't get me wrong: I LOVE banana! And I love this blend. Also, there was plenty of real tobacco flavor in the mix, especially nuttiness from the burley. Great stuff, huh? I guess for me at least, RLP-6 drives me bananas AND nuts! Cheers. Read Less

Great Aromatic That Lets the Tobacco Flavor Through

Some people prefer RLP-6 over 1-Q and one can understand why this. Essentially they are very similar blends, the aroma is practically the same but RLP-6 is a little more strong both in taste and strength without abandoning the fact that both are mild... Read More blends.
The addition of burley into RLP makes the whole difference, it gives a little more body and strength even though virginias predominate all the way. RLP is more American and classy while 1-Q is modern and cosmopolitan.
Personally i still prefer 1-Q above RLP. RLP delivers the same roasted vanilla marshmallow flavour from 1-Q yet it is dryer in mouth and a little more bitey, the burley is not that noticeable as it is subdued by virginias and aromas so its only quality is adding a more round bouquet and dryness to the smoke, so in the end RLP has more dimension but is never as easy going as 1-Q and in this respect simplicity is best and wins over.
RLP is the 1-Q for the lovers of burley... Read Less

In the 70s, 80s, and 90s I smoked Captain Black White, but found it bit too much. Then I found Chartwell at my local Tinderbox (they were in every mall back then). It was Capitan Black White, but with much less bite. But somewhere in the early 2000s,... Read More Chartwell suddenly changed. It wasn't nearly as sweet...and the guy behind the counter told me they were trying to get away from "aromatics." Really? The same name for that blend, but it's really not the same blend at all?
Today's RLP-6 (which is Chartwell) is hazel-nutty, and gets a certain sweetness once I get to the middle of the bowl...but couldn't be a regular blend for me. HOWEVER...if I mix equal parts of RLP-6, 1Q, and BCA, I get a beautifully tasty, mild tobacco I can smoke all day. The 1Q contributes its sweetness, the RLP-6 contributes some complexity and nuttiness, and the BCA minimizes any chance of bite. I urge you to try it yourself...and let me know what you think!

This blend tastes almost 100% like Missouri Meerschaum’s Great Dane Blend. Very very smooth with a little bit of bite on the back end.

I've been smoking cigars for over 20 years now and just in the last couple of weeks expanded my tobacco passion into the world of pipes. I picked up several different flavors of bulk tobacco (RLP-6, 1-Q, Early Morning Pipe, Nightcap, MM 965, Mississ... Read Moreippi River) and some tins (Peterson Irish Flake, Frog Morton, and Christmas Cheer 2014) and while many of them are all keepers in my book, the RLP-6 is the only one I've tried so far that I actually love to bits and pieces already. It packs easily, burns easily and slowly, has one of the most pleasant aromas imaginable, leaves no bitterness on the tongue, and has a light sweet taste. You can smoke this at any time of the day and it will be great. I really didn't think I'd like an aromatic this much since I've never been a fan of flavored cigars, but this RLP-6 is awesome.

Mild cool smoke with a core of earthy tobacco and vanilla with hints of chocolate and caramel.....nice aroma of vanilla and the ocasional burnt marshmallow. A little drying time and fire produce a fine white ash.

The smell of the tobacco out of the bag reminds me of a well flavoured rum - lots of hints of caramel and vanilla (along with some cocoa), and almost a hint of berries permeating the in- between spaces. It IS a little moist out of the bag, but what tobacco ISN'T, right? Let it sit for a few minutes and you're good.
It lights well, and stays lit well too, at least in a Peterson 312. Once lit, the smells that were sensed upon opening the bag, transfer into the taste and smoke. Again, pleasant, especially as an "After dinner" desert smoke (in my eyes). Relaxing, somewhat cool, and overall great!
If you are looking for a flavourful (without being overwhelming) smoke, that can be had at any time of day, I would not hesitate to purchase some to try. I am glad I went ahead with a larger order of it!
PS also, try it mixed with some of the MacBaren's Virginia No.1. (about 2/3rd's RLP-6, 1/3rd Virginia, to give it a bit of a more "traditional" undertone). Or just smoke it as is! Read Less

Well constructed and balanced. I also feel obliged to note that though I'm used to a fairly sticky post-pipe experience with these kind of blends, having smoked sutliff equivalents for years, there must be a terrific amount of humectant added given the coughsyrupy (it really smells like cherry cough syrup! ) residue..
